Impact CratersRonald G. Velardi IIIAbstractIt is truly remarkable the capable of the telescope to allow humanity to see further andfurther objects that are mind-blowing distances away. With the invention of refracting andreflecting telescopes, astronomers have been able to gather more information of our universe.But, how does the greater sized telescope correspond with the ability to see deeper in space orthe capabilities to see further in the past. The purpose of this experiment is to first, test andcompare our cumulative data with from Dawens’ Limit ( O=2.063x10^5 h/l arcsec). The resultsproved noteworthy as they were 10-20% difference. The second part of this experiment is totest the magnitude differences make on ability to view dimmer objects. Norman Pogson madethe conclusion the magnitude size has a 2.512 greater than the previous magnitude. Our results
